ENT Nasal Polyps NJ

Nasal Polyps

Nasal Polyps, a non-cancerous mass of tissue inside the nose, can cause allergies
and sinus infections and often make it difficult to breathe and smell. Symptoms
can either be addressed with medication or surgical removal if a severe case. In
many cases polyps can reoccur.

Symptoms of Nasal Polyps

Nasal polyps may not be noticeable but may cause symptoms which
can be irritating a few are:

Snoring
Post nasal drip
Runny nose
Nasal congestion
Slight bleeding when blowing nose

Often associated with allergies or asthma, nasal polyps may cause no symptoms, especially if they’re small, and require no treatment. But larger nasal polyps can block normal drainage from the sinuses. When too much mucus accumulates in the sinuses, it can become infected, which accounts for the thick, discolored drainage in the nose and throat that affects many people with nasal polyps.

If you have any symptoms which are pretty irritating and have lasted a few weeks, you should schedule an appointment with us.
